Title: The Forgetting
Author: Sharon Cameron
Date of Publication: September 13th, 2016
What isn’t written, isn’t remembered. Even your crimes.
Nadia lives in the city of Canaan, where life is safe and structured, hemmed in by white stone walls and no memory of what came before. But every twelve years the city descends into the bloody chaos of the Forgetting, a day of no remorse, when each person’s memories – of parents, children, love, life, and self – are lost. Unless they have been written.
In Canaan, your book is your truth and your identity, and Nadia knows exactly who hasn’t written the truth. Because Nadia is the only person in Canaan who has never forgotten.
But when Nadia begins to use her memories to solve the mysteries of Canaan, she discovers truths about herself and Gray, the handsome glassblower, that will change her world forever. As the anarchy of the Forgetting approaches, Nadia and Gray must stop an unseen enemy that threatens both their city and their own existence – before the people can forget the truth. And before Gray can forget her.
All smirks aside, because this book is filled with Gray and his smirks, I could over pass that annoying over smirkiness, because I loved this book! I wasn’t sure at first, because Nadia took a little bit for me to like her character, but she really grows throughout the book.
I was addicted to finding out what the mystery was behind the Forgetting, and why people lose their memories every twelve years. When everything unravels, it was like opening a lovely present. The villain is a real piece of work! As for the side characters, Genivee was awesome!
The romance was so sweet. I loved Gray and Nadia together! I felt they brought out the best in each other. The book itself has a nice slow and steady stroll, but I wasn’t bored one bit. When it gets toward the end, things get all kinds of crazy! I definitely recommend reading this one!
